Ovi & Jessica Dumea:  Ovi & Jessica are missionaries that we support, serving in Romania with Wycliffe Bible Translators.  Please be in prayer for them as Ovi’s mother recently passed away from COVID-19.  We pray for the Lord’s comfort and peace in this time of sorrow.


Ron Lucas:  We give thanks to the Lord that Ron was able to have a successful eye surgery a week ago.  We pray that this will prove to be successful and that he would not have further complications.


Tim & Amy Schutt Family:  Please remember Tim & Amy’s brother-in-law, Brad, his wife Lindsey, and their family in your prayers.  Brad, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor a while back, has been having some rougher days with fatigue, body aches, and excruciating headaches.  We pray for the Lord’s mercy and healing for Brad.


Kristin and Mazy Sterk (6 year old daughter of Dan & Kristin):  We give thanks to the Lord that Mazy had a successful removal of her tonsils and tubes from her ears.  Please remember Kristin in your prayers as well. She will be going in for a series of heart tests to determine if she has cardiac sarcoidosis, and if she is closer to being a candidate for a heart transplant.
